The square shape and simple styling are among the most remarkable features of the IONIQ 5, which the company refers to as an electric SUV despite its dimensions resembling a hatchback. It's 4.62 meters long, but its wheelbase is larger than the brand's most big SUV, implying a very roomy interior.
The IONIQ 5 base version will use a single electric motor installed in the rear axle and generate 225 hp and 258 lb-ft, enough to travel 482 km per charge. The IONIQ 5 AWD version adds an engine to the front axle for 320 hp and 446 lb-ft, ranging between 433 and 392 km, depending on the version. Reaching 96 km / h will take you less than 5 seconds.
The IONIQ 5 is also the first electric car from the Korean company to use the new E-GMP platform, which is created specifically for electric vehicles. This foundation enables it to use a dual 400V/800V electrical design, working with 350 kW fast chargers. In just 18 minutes, it will charge from 10% to 80% capacity.
The solutions in the cab, in addition to its distinctive design and superior electrical architecture, are what make the Hyundai IONIQ 5 so exceptional. It includes two 12-inch displays, an augmented reality head-up display, and conventional plugs for charging everything from laptops to electric bicycles.
For the past several weeks, the first Ioniq 5 client vehicles have been delivered. The starting price is 40,000 euros.
